Despite the bill being defeated in committee, House Bill 1076 was brought to the floor Wednesday afternoon, debated and passed out of the House. Lawmakers used a rule called a “smoke out” to bring it to the floor despite its initial defeat. HB 1076 would require a birth certificate to reflect only the assigned sex at birth of a person and not allow changes to be made in the future. Opponents have called the legislation anti-trans. District 3’s delegation of Carl Perry and Drew Dennert both voted in favor of the legislation along with district 2’s Kaleb Weis and Lana Greenfield. The bill now goes to the senate where it will again be heard in committee before a potential floor vote.
